6:30pm
i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, jodi. a new ad from the national rifle association is raising eyebrows with some accusing the largest gun advocacy group of crossing the line. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools? when his kids are protected by armed guards at their schools. >> the ad is making reference to the security of obama's daughters. jay carney attacked the ads saying in a statement, quote, to go as far as to make the safety of the president's children the subject of an attack add is repugnant and cowardly. now the nra says the ad is not about the president's daughters but about keeping all children safe. >> so this morning as the president unveiled the sweeping gun control proposals he offers some sobering numbers and big statements about the impact and extent of gun violence in america. >> the question is, are the numbers accurate? sam brock examines the president's claims, the numbers, to see if the case he's making
6:31pm
for tighter gun laws can pass the truth test. sam? >> jessica, diane, good evening. everyone's goal is exactly the same, to reduce violence and to protect our children. but will an assault weapons ban really curb mass shootings and are four out of every ten weapons purchased without a background check? here is what the numbers tell us. president obama signed 23 executive orders wednesday to strengthen gun laws but demand congress to act, too. if we want, quote, a real and lasting difference. >> i'm calling on congress to ask specific proposals right away. >> reporter: one of those is to bring back a decades old ban on assault weapons. so how did the country fare before, during, and after the weapons ban? this graphic from the princeton election consortium shows visually how the number of mass shootings ebbed and flowed over the last 30 years. the band was in effect despite a
6:32pm
one-year spike in 1999, the year of columbine. mass shootings climbed precipitously once it expired. we averaged 1.5 a year and 25 people shot in those massacres between 1982 and 2w0ur. those numbers more than doubled to 3.4 shootings and 55 people shot per occasion. secondly, how about the proposal to enact a universal back-check. a dealer or private seller that would effectively close the so-called gun show loophole. >> but it's hard to enforce when 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. >> reporter: this same statistic used by the president, the brady campaign, the campaign to stop gun violence. to justify universal background check.
6:33pm
according to the coalition to stop gun violence, its origin is in 1997 study that useses gun transaction numbers from 1993-'94. as you probably know many states have modified their background check laws since then making the president's claim very difficult to prove. la lastly mr. obama said this. >> in the month since 20 precious children and six brave adults were violently taken from us, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. >> reporter: this statement is wrong. the number is much higher. according to the cdc 900 people are murdered on average every month in the u.s. by firearms. but 2,700 are killed by a gun every single month. but here is the caveat. the vast majority of those deaths, about 63%, come from suicide or accidental death.
6:34pm
now to widen the scope of this discussion, violent crime over the last 20 years nationally has fallen by a massive amount, 50%. technically america is much safer now statistically than it's been in decades. but controlling the crime rate is not the underlying goal of the president norv congress. it's preventing more newtowns from ever happening again and there is some evidence to suggest a weapons assault ban could achieve that end. i am sam brock and that is today's reality check. >> now you can watch the full video on our website, nbcbayarea.com. coverage of nooth town shooting tragedy and you can leave a comment about what you think about gun control. well, there's a new study out that finds the most hazardous drivers are unlie acceptsed drivers between the ages of 20 and 29. hoping to use that information to convince lawmakers to begin issuing driver's licenses to undocumented workers. california dmv is the first significant analysis of
6:35pm
unlicensed drivers in 15 years. it found that drivers without a license are three times more likely to cause a crash. immigrant activists argue that it would force them to better understand the rules of the road and ultimately make them safer drivers. in algeria, several americans are among the 41 taken hostage by islamic militants at a natural gas facility operated by a norwegian company and bp is believed most of the hostages are from those two countries. the attacked the gas field because of algeria support of france's operation against rebels. two people were killed during the raid. u.s. and algerian leaders are now working together to determine how to respond. u.s. officials are calling this an act of terrorism. two people died after a helicopter crashed into the street during rush hour. scotland yard said the chopper was flying in heavy fog when it hit a construction crane.
6:36pm

6:37pm
another brentwood school to continue teaching without a warning to the parents there. as part of the settlement, she must leave her classroom and retire at the end of the school year. and still ahead, they say their product is safe but can they prove it? the dangers of those energy drinks. good evening, i'm jeff ranieri in the bay area weather center. we did have some warming today. temperatures dropping off right now 46 in livermore and also 50 in san francisco. we'll have more on that warming trend coming up and if you're thinking about the 49ers game this weekend in atlanta got some great weather for the game. also plenty of sunshine. it will feel like the bay area out on the field. i have your forecast and some warming coming up.

emergency visits involving energy drinks are happening more frequently. the number of people who need medical attention after drinking energy drinks doubled between 2007 and 011. energy drinks became more popular at convenience stores, bars, and on college campuses. most of the 20,000 cases involve teens and young adults. the survey says it forces them to go to the emergency room. a word of warning tonight. you may want to think about how much caffeine you take in. more than 4,000 men found those who took in the most caffeine were more prone to incontinence. 85% of americans consume caffeine regularly. the study found men who took more than 200 milligrams daily
6:41pm
were 72% more likely to suffer from urinary troubles. that is about two cups of coffee. and using your smartphone to diagnose melanoma is not so smart. you can analyze pictures of skin marks and provide a diagnosis. researchers at the university of pittsburgh studied four of the apps and three they found melanoma was incorrectly undiagnosed as unconcerning. this happened about a third of the time and could lead to delayed treatment. researchers are worried people may rely on their phones than the advise of a dermatologist. >> always check with a doctor. let's turn things over to jeff. i want to check with him. >> we're going to have sunshine out there. you'll need the spf though it's not going to be warm, it will be hot blast. we'll have details on where we could have a few 70s, that's right, 70s, coming up in the full forecast. oh, jeff, that sounds so

6:47pm
let's get you to the winds right now. this did shift anywhere from five to six miles per hour and that slight offshore wind shift good enough to help temperatures to warm up about five degrees from what we had yesterday. let's get you outside to our sky camera network. you can see the haze here down in the silicon valley but it is clear up above. if you look straight up you'll see all those stars for tonight and also some excellent visibility out here into san francisco. current temperatures is in the 40s, still cold. 48 in napa. we head throughout the next couple of days. you're going to be able to thank -- well, i'll take a few thank yous but the high pressure offshore continues to edge closer that will give our temperatures a ten-degree rise from what we experienced for today. not going to get us into record setting territory but i do think the offshore flow that had will be associated with it and all the warm air aloft could bump temperatures up to a few 70-degree readings.
6:48pm
